11:25 pm
10%, and dr. ben carson has down to about 9%. >> everybody's numbers have gone up a little bit because there are a few people on the race, right. >> exactly. on the democratic side, hillary clinton is at 62% and bernie sanders is at 33, a little bit of a change from new hampshire. >> and in a will you tell of cases, people are spending a lot of money trying to get these votes and when you break that down, the numbers are pretty shocking. >> it's really interesting, so we have the numbers here. in the lead, governor jeb bush spent over $1,000 per vote, 1,0686 per vote -- >> wow! >> up in second place, governor chris christie with $139 and he's not even in the race and marco rubio with 156. ted cruz, $11:per vote and then we have donald trump with 31,
11:26 pm
sanders and clinton are about even. clinton with $52. >> when you see those dollars how much are being spent, it's pretty amazing, especially when you talk about jeb bush. >> yes, i know. >> it's a huge amount of money and he didn't place super high. >> thanks, kaitlin. we appreciate it. next to the sights and sounds of the campaign trail, here is more with the battle for the south. >>. >> reporter: onward to south carolina and it looks like all the candidates are targeting one person, front runner donald trump. >> we're going to bomb using a vulgarity and i for one as a candidate, unless i'm caught with a camera that i need to see i'm not going to use profanity in the public. >> we're going now to south carolina. we're going to win in south carolina. >> texas senator ted cruz and florida senator marco rubio are both looking to bounce back. >> and now south carolina is always -- presidential race. historic role, accusing --
11:27 pm
campaign. we're going to win this primary. it's important to the country and i'm fired up about that. >> he calls himself a happy warrior, he thinks his campaign is positive >> if we're going to fix america we're going to have someone that reminds people; we're not democrats or republicans, we are americans and entry to beat the challenge that we are americans. >> over on the democratic side. >> because of a huge voter turnout, and i say huge -- >>. >> reporter: bernie sanders admits south carolina is going to be a tough one for him. hillary clinton is heavily favored among african-americans, but analysts say young, black college aged voters may be tired of clinton. >> i know i have some work to do particularly with young people. >> democrats and progressives win when voters -- voter turnout is high. >> now, we take this campaign to the entire country. we're going to fight for every vote in every state -- >> polls show that hillary
11:28 pm
of the african-american vote but one college student told reporters there may be young voters will be looking for a fresh face, because we've already seen hillary. amy, fox 35 news. mike sign an joins us to -- synan to talk about it now. now we're talking about the establish -- establishment here. he could -- who could emerge? >> if it's not marco rubio, then it's not going to be anybody. donald trump is steam rolling the party right now and when you look at ted cruz, he's firmly in second place, he really has not been the establishment either. he's been sort of a thorn on everybody's side in the senate, and so the establishment really doesn't have anybody right now, unless marco rubio, or jeb bush can find some kind of way to break up. >> and i think that's why jeb bush has a chance here because he talked about establishment money and support and endorsements. if marco rubio continues to slide, they're not going to go for donald trump and they're not
11:29 pm
we've heard he doesn't get along with much of the establishment. >> look, the rank and file g.o.p. voters can just not find a way to get over the fact that he is the son of george bush and the brother of george w. bush. so jeb bush's campaign isn't going anywhere. he's had months to overcome this burden and has shown no sign of doing so. >> okay. you've lived in south carolina for a while. your thoughts on the ground, does donald trump has have a shot there? >> absolutely. he has a great shot there because so many voters are disaffected but the one thing that's clear about south carolina politics is it is down and dirty and in my day it was a lot of robo calls that were made in the state of carolina. well, technology is changing things so the primary way to are a -- reach voters now is probably social immediately. the tricks are going to be dirty and it will be interesting to see what kinds of things that have been said -- will be said about donald trump, especially his personal life that haven't
11:30 pm
i'm fascinated to see that. ted cruz really inside a great position in south carolina, because this date does have -- this state does have a lot of evangelical voters and they could have a lot of family value voters, so it will it will be interesting to see how they place. >> one week the hero and next week the zero. >> a disappointment is not on you; it's on me. >> coming up our good week; bad week segment is coming up. >> another political fun fact for you. william mckinley was the first presidential candidate to campaign in using the telephone.
